Few things can catch a snack thief red-handed as efficiently as a freshly painted crimson cookie jar. Keep track of your sweet stock with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of paint-your-own pottery at All Fired Up in Tuscaloosa.
All Fired Up owner Noelle broadens creative minds in a welcoming environment as guests of all ages cast artistic expression onto premade pottery. Patrons pick their favorite pottery pieces ($2–$50) from a large stock of unpainted plates, figurines, vases, and piggy banks before choosing paint colors that match the eyes of favorite pet rocks. Guiding paintbrushes of all sizes across ceramic surfaces, artists of all levels bedeck pottery in solid colors, polka dots, and impressionist swirls. After staff glaze and fires pieces, generally within one week, three-dimensional paintings are ready to follow guests home. Each unpainted ceramic piece is individually priced, and an additional fee of half the item's cost covers studio time, supplies, and a passing fascination with Campbell's soup cans.
All Fired Up
All Fired Up’s owner, Noelle, opened the small pottery shop as a wholesome place where families could come together to create art and bond in a fun, supportive environment. She and her helpful staff aid in the creation and kiln firing of one-of-a-kind dishware, piggy banks, and more. The sturdy shelves lining each wall of the cozy shop brim with dozens of paint colors, along with an array of inspirational stamps, stencils, and design books. All Fired Up also fuels creativity through children’s art classes, summer camps, and birthday parties.
